Chet Baker Sings: It Could Happen To You is Chet Baker's classic 1958 vocal album. It features favourites like "I'm Old Fashioned," "My Heart Stood Still" and "Everything Happens To Me".
The album offers a modern, hipper take on standards like “Old Devil Moon”, “You’re Driving Me Crazy”, and “How Long Has This Been Going On?”. Chet Baker Sings is unique in that the nimble artist sets aside his trumpet in several of the tracks, using only his vocals and even scats some of the improvised solos in a style that sounds very much like his lyrical trumpet playing.
Few musicians have embodied the romantic, and ultimately tragic, jazz figure as totally as Chesney "Chet" Baker. Unschooled yet eloquent in his music, the Baker mystique has only reinforced one of the most haunting trumpet styles and ingenuous singing approaches.
